Tell Us Your Story of Climate Courage

Tell us about your acts of climate courage or those of others – human or non-human – in no more than 100 words.

No one willing to face the reality of the climate crisis can do so without fearing for the fate of the planet and its inhabitants. Yet, day after day, countless numbers of us transcend this fear through acts of courage, big and small. Whether we plant a garden, protest a pipeline, or find ways to adapt to our changing environment, we dare to envision and build a better future.

Courage (noun): the ability to do something that frightens one; strength in the face of pain or grief.

In the spirit of the New York Times Tiny Love Stories, and following in the footsteps of our Tiny Coronavirus Stories, we invite you to send us your true story of climate courage, in 100 words or fewer, using the form below.

We’ll publish the most inspiring stories we receive. These will form our Stories of Climate Courage collection – a testament and reminder of what we can do individually and collectively.

We look forward to reading you.
